Maybe, or maybe not. It's not always practical to relicense a software
with many contributors.
Given that the issue that triggered the discussion was the relicensing
of star from GPL to CDDL, and afaict from Joerg Schilling's mails to the
various *BSD projects, he relicensed the source code overnight, it seems
as if he is the sole copyright holder, or has the other copyright
So I would not expect number of contributors to be a problem to
re-relicensing it under an ammended CDDL.
